Biography

Claudia Comte is best known for her site-specific installations, featuring wooden sculptural forms set against graphic, abstract wall paintings. Comte creates a unique, rule-based measurement system for each new body of work so that every piece relates to a particular scale. Despite such regimented schemes, Comte’s pieces are imbued with a sense of playfulness, humor and irreverence, puncturing the solemn atmosphere connected with minimalism.
